    The best way to describe Skrull Kill Krew is "snarky fun." Skrull Kill Krew has made the leap into the 'oughts with a keen sense of what works now. Now all we have to fear is the inevitable "Creed" reunion. Read Full Review

    In look and attitude, this comic seems less like something that's a sequel to a Morrison/Millar series and more like something that could have launched as part of Marvel's "Tsunami" line earlier in this decade, but this would have been one of the better comics from that largely ill-fated bunch, and I look forward to reading more of Felber and Robinson's take on the "Skrull Kill Krew."

You wonder why HAMMER isn't taking out all these Skrull nests for the good publicity, right? It's not a bad book at all, but not really anything that leaps up and grabs you by the throat either. The dialogue isservicable (though a scene with the African-American Ryder requesting "Crackers!" in the diner and being misunderstood is a little cringe-worthy) and the overall effect, even from the big reveal at the end. The original SKK was the brainchild of Grant Morrison and Mark Millar, and had a wicked edge throughout, while this one seems somewhat defanged. Perhaps the rest of the issues will change my mind, but Skrull Kill Krew #1 ranks an undecided (but not unmoved) 2.5 out of Read Full Review
